If you respond that he is also an illusion of my subconscious, you can come over and change his stinky dirty nappies.
In your nightly dreams, it's not that the dream character that represents you is more real than the dragon dream character. They are both characters in a dream, and the only difference is that you experience through the perspective of one and not the other, and so it seems to be you. You aren't actually IN the dream at all, you're just observing. Or we could say you are the dream itself, since the dream is the movement of the mind you take yourself to be.
So it's not that you are real, and that real you is manifesting an unreal Maserati that the other real person somehow experiences. All the objects and characters are equally appearances in YOUR waking dream, and you aren't any of them.
